Connect:CIU (CIU's Orientation)

Connect:CIU Spring 2015 Undergrad Orientation:  
Wednesday, January 21, 2015

As a new incoming student, the Student Life office wants you to receive a solid introduction to CIU. One of the main ways we accomplish that is through our Connect:CIU orientation program. During Connect:CIU you will be able to finalize your registration, meet fellow students, faculty and staff, and orient yourself to the CIU community. CIU requires each new undergraduate student to attend Connect:CIU orientation session prior to the start of the spring semester.  The date for Spring Undergraduate Orientation is January 21, 2015. Please see the schedule (subject to change) below:
